Professor Sandeep S Desai
Director and Advisor
Centre for Development Studies
PES University

I am truly privileged in being the Dean of Faculty of Law and Centre for Development Studies and it is a matter of great delight to pen this message as such. With an experience of nearly 25 years as an academic, professional, Coordinator and researcher, I have humbly accepted this noble mission and responsibility to develop the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Economics in the Centre for Development Studies. Law and Economics are an integral part of the development quotient the world over and it is indisputable that they offer new paradigms for our country and society to develop. Post -globalization, and especially, in the second decade of the 21st Century, India has witnessed great economic prosperity and the accompanying development in the area of Law. With our twin programmes, viz., BB.A., LL. B. and M.Sc. in Applied Economics, we are vigorously attempting to unravel the great potential which our society possesses and we leave no stone unturned in ensuring that CDS takes its raison dā€™ etre to its logical conclusion.

Of course, it goes without saying that we employ different innovative methods in achieving this objective. We are committed to develop a group of competent and vibrant professionals for the posterity. I am confident that this passionate group of youngsters will usher in an unfathomable range of developments in the areas of Law, Economics and Development.
